The Old Macaroni in Morzine is full of imagination and charm, and the views over the village and mountains are astounding. It’s designed around families, with a Harry Potter-style bedroom and private cinema, while the hot tub and barrel sauna will tempt you after long days on the slopes.
The Old Macaroni features individually designed bathrooms and bedrooms, a super luxury cinema, massive outdoor deck, hot tub and a glass fronted barrel sauna, framing undoubtedly one of the best views in Morzine.
Taking influence from the owner’s favourite novels; each bedroom has been carefully designed to represent subtle elements of the book it is named after. The Harry Potter children’s bedroom is every child’s dream with four built-in cabin beds which each have a double bed inside them. Each room has bespoke king-size beds, an en-suite shower/bathroom and a smart TV.
The entrance to the chalet has beautiful traditional features from the original farmhouse building and a large boot room allows ample practical space for guest’s outdoor clothes, skis and boots. The entrance level of the chalet has been transformed into a beautiful open dining, kitchen and entertaining space with a bedroom and a spa treatment room leading off the corridor.
As with everything in the chalet, the kitchen has been custom made with every detail taken into consideration, including a professional teppanyaki plate. Overlooking a large dining room, the kitchen has an open-plan layout that lends itself perfectly to entertaining and being looked after by our chef and hosts. As well as the dining table there is a further seating area on this level which is perfect for a relaxing cup of coffee or indeed an option for those wishing to have two dining areas, perhaps a children’s table and an adults table for example. A glass floor on the level above gives a glimpse of the living room and is strategically located so as to be able to keep an eye on the kids’ room upstairs!
A beautiful spa treatment room is located on this level and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing massage or beauty treatment including an internal shower and relaxing mood lighting. This room has been cleverly designed to offer further accommodation should you require it. A hidden full double bed, with proper mattress, can be lowered down creating a further bedroom for larger groups/families.
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway provides the inspiration for the first bedroom in the chalet. A sumptuous turquoise velvet bed and touches of blue give this bedroom a bright but calm atmosphere. As in each bedroom, the en-suite bathroom continues the bespoke theme. With glass, taps and a shower integrated with lighting, every detail has been thought of to provide the most luxurious accommodation.
Upstairs, the view of Morzine village from the lounge will take your breath away. The upper level of the chalet comprises of the main living area as well as three bedrooms. Glazed bi-folding doors open one entire side of the lounge to take in the most spectacular view of Morzine, above which The Old Macaroni is perched on the hillside. The main living room and lounge overlook the church and town hall and takes in the view of the whole valley as well as the Pleney and Nyon pistes. With ample space for relaxing, the lounge also features a grand piano and a beautiful log burning stove. The bi-folding doors open up on to a balcony that wraps around the chalet and offers the perfect spot from which to watch the weekly Pleney fireworks display and torchlight decent.
The second bedroom is named after The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and indeed is befitting of its royal name. A grand, burgundy velvet bed has views out of the huge windows that open on to a balcony, providing a quiet, private spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or a quiet glass of wine. After a long day skiing, nothing could be more welcome than a relaxing bath. A stand-alone, roll-top bath has it’s own mezzanine above the bedroom which also takes in the view of the Pleney slopes and Point de Nyon. A further shower room completes this bedroom and is as spectacular as the rest of the chalet. Double sets of wash hand basins, as well as a fabulous double shower, make this bathroom a design feature in itself.
The third bedroom, created with inspiration for All Men are Mortal, has a true boutique hotel feel to it. Navy velvet with bright pink and green accents and crisp white linen give this room a modern edge. It is open to a huge shower and dressing room that mean the bedroom has an open and airy feel. Sliding glass doors open on to a private balcony with stunning views across the valley.
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak lends itself to the ornate fourth bedroom. This bedroom is beautifully lit with a soft, romantic feel to it. A beautiful, large en-suite shower room continues the design with attention to detail everywhere from the towel rails to the shower fixtures and stunning tiles. As with all of the bedrooms, there is ample storage space with cupboards and drawers and each room is very spacious – perfect for a luxury holiday.
A mezzanine level has been designed to offer an exciting children’s room but cleverly accommodates adults as well. Whilst primarily built with children in mind, the Harry Potter room has four beautiful built-in cabin beds, each with their own curtains for privacy. Each of these beds, however, is a full-size double bed with proper mattress meaning that they can easily accommodate adults. The mezzanine is open allowing adults to keep an eye on children as they play upstairs. There is lots of room for kids to play with toys, watch TV or indeed read any of the many books from the bookcase.
Further entertaining space can be found in the lower level of the chalet where you will find the cinema. Tiered seating and art deco lighting are reminiscent of the traditional movie halls but the bright pink and purple velvet seating give it a luxurious modern twist. The state-of-the-art integrated surround sound and screen evoke the real cinema feel and when the lights go down it genuinely feels like you are at the movies. Huge custom made bean bags provide extra seating and a sumptuous option from which to sit and enjoy the film.

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful.
Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.
When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen.
Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served on 6 nights of your stay.
The chalet provides an open bar of Champagne, Prosecco, house wines, spirits and mixers. There is an upgraded wine menu available - payable locally.
The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
